Question Could someone help me please :) :) ~

Hello,
so i'm really really new to Betta fish-keeping, and it seems that my filters water intake is too strong, and as my fish likes to hang around the filter, his lovely long fins keep getting sucked in (yet he still insists on hanging around it as he can hide there -- he's shy lol). I can't get a slower filter until possibly next week and I've put a stocking over it to try lessen it, and it has sort of but now my water seems to be full of what looks like *dust* particles - though my fish seems okay with it, I don't like it. So is there something else I could do to slow down the water intake without the stocking?

I have a filter sponge that I put over the "waterfall" of my filter that works, maybe try and get one to the intake?
